ProMedica’s Michigan-based Physician Hospital Organization Selects Wellcentive
Company’s extensive experience with Michigan’s quality programs provides competitive advantage.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Wellcentive, an Atlanta-based provider of innovative Population Health Management and Data Analytics solutions, today announced that it has been selected by ProMedica’s Michigan-based Lenawee Physician Hospital Organization (LPHO) to support its various clinical quality and performance-based initiatives, including Pay-for-Performance (P4P) and Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) programs, as well as to help it prepare to become a clinically integrated network.
ProMedica’s LPHO signed a three-year contract after an extensive review of more than a dozen competing firms. The organization, representing 110 physicians, will utilize Wellcentive’s Outcomes Manager and Data Analytics solutions to manage its diverse and extensive inventory of incentive initiatives. This grouping of initiatives includes Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Organized Systems of Care (OSC) and Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP), as well as the Michigan Primary Care Transformation Project (MiPCT) and Partners in Performance (PIP) program.
“Michigan is a very progressive and complex market for quality programs,” said William Navarre, Director of Health Information Technology at Medical Advantage Group, the consulting group that assisted ProMedica’s LPHO with its search. “It’s unique and challenging. Wellcentive’s extensive and proven experience with the state’s quality programs set it apart from the other firms we considered.”
The Wellcentive implementation for ProMedica’s LPHO will include 16 different interfaces. Some of these interfaces will help aggregate and normalize data from various data sources such as electronic health records (EHRs) and practice management systems (PMSs), and other interfaces will send data directly to payers to help ease the reporting burden for different P4P programs.
“We believe that our value is best demonstrated where there is disparate data that can be activated,” said Mason Beard, Senior Vice President of Solutions and Operations and a Wellcentive co-founder. “By demonstrating that capability in Michigan, we haven proven we can deliver those benefits anywhere. We are honored and excited to be working with ProMedica’s LPHO. It’s gratifying to see the momentum our solutions are enjoying all over the country.”
